"Creating safe spaces for Muslim young people to explore personal,
social, spiritual and political choices"

Muslim Youthwork Foundation Posters

The Muslim Youthwork Foundation is publishing a set of posters designed to capture ‘Muslim youth experiences’ which challenge and subvert the stereotypes and Islamophobic perceptions that Muslims and Muslim communities face today.

The counter-images they convey are intended to foster debate on media representations by reference to personal experience of Muslim youth identity and can be used in a variety of learning settings by teachers, youth workers and trainers or just as posters.

For Muslim young people their faith identity has increasingly become positive and equally painful to negotiate in a context that makes them vulnerable to acts of violence and discrimination by being labelled as the enemy withinMG Khan (Muslim Youthwork Foundation)

The powerful imagery and text aims to generate understanding through visual depiction of feelings, challenges and choices. Young Muslims find themselves living in a social and political context that leaves them little choice but to engage with their religious identity. For many, the agenda of Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) frames them as Potential Violent Extremists. The impacts these debates and policies have on young people’s lives socially, psychologically, physically and economically are framed within the posters.
